    Review from Metal Forces #9, 1984
    Troy are the band formed by ex-Tytan and Angel Witch drummer Dave Dufort. The line-up was finalized last September and alongside Dufort arte Mike Baron (vocals), Frederic Avesque (guitar), George Hayes (guitar) and Richard Vernon (bass). Instrumentally Troy remind me a lot of early Maiden which is not a bad thing, espescially as the material is well constructed with plenty of variation to keep the listeners full attention. Both guitarists are respnsible for some imaginitive soloing, while up fron there's the powerful vocals of Mike Baron where comparisions can be made to Jon Deverill of Tygers of Pan Tang fame, especially on the fast-paced "Long Way To The Stars" - my fave track of five on the bands debut demo. Unfortunately the excellance of the songs are ruined somewhat by the poor mix of the tape. Baron's vocals in particular are to far up front and dominate just a little too much. Still in a nutshell, Troy have brought that famed NWOBHM sound band up to date, and with the likes of Tokyo Blade and Grim Reaper proving that there's still more than just mild interest in ya olde British metal, I can see no reason why these South Londoners shouldn''t secure some sort of record deal soon. After all it will make a change from all this American sounding British HR garbage that's currently being turned out by the majors. Long live British Metal!
